When we lived in Vancouver, WA, one of our favorite trips was to drive up to the Grist Mill just north of where we lived. They did tours every weekend and actually ground different flours you could take home. This stamp, from Heartfelt Creations, reminds me of those fun trips. This stamp and die are from the new Heartfelt Creations "Window Scene" Collection
The background paper is from the Basic Grey “Origins” paper pad. The grist mill was stamped on white card stock and colored with colored pencils and oms. The frame was cut out and centered over the design. I traced around the inside edges of the frame then cut out the design slightly larger to fit in the window. It was attached to the inside edge of the window with liquid glue. The flowers were made by stamping six Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch flowers and three slightly smaller posies. They were cut out with the matching dies. To create the flowers I shaped them then layered two of the larger flowers and one smaller one together. I cut green card stock for the centers. Five fern type leaves were punched. The greeting was stamped and cut out with one of the Nestability Ribbon Tags Trios. Two layers of ribbon were run through the ends of the tag and attached to the card with ScorTape. The Posy Patch flowers and punched leaves were arranged in the corner and a bow added to complete the card.
